Full description

Landmark design in a rural setting with southerly views.

Location

Pickwick is a rural setting in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside just south west of Oxford. This is a mature, gently undulating site with many stunning lakes, ponds and trees. The varied outlooks reach across water, through woods and some far reaching southerly views to the rolling Berkshire Downs.

It's conveniently positioned for modern-day living with the nearby village of Kingston Bagpuize which has a good range of local shops and the well-known Millets Farm Shop, is about two miles away.

Abingdon, the historic Thames-side market town, provides a wider range of shops including a Waitrose and Sainsbury. Oxford and Witney are also close by.

One of the principal draws for people wanting to move to the area is the range of Oxford and Abingdon Schools. The properties are within range of the Oxford School-run. Well known schools particularly close to the property, include: Abingdon School & Abingdon Prep, St Helens and St Katharine's, St Hughes, Cothill, Chandlings and Radley College. The Oxford Schools include the Dragon, Summerfields, Oxford High School, Headington and St Edwards.

Communications are good; the motorway network is easily accessed via the A34 which is about 8 miles away with the M40 to the north and M4 to the south, and the London rail commute best from nearby Didcot Parkway.

Description

Pickwick is a very special development of six, stunning, individual houses of varying design covering a 100 acre estate. The vendor is a long established and well respected developer, who uses the best artisans and craftsmen, setting the benchmark for materials and architectural detailing and garden/landscape design. Three of the houses are now built and occupied with arguably the best three sites remaining for sale. If requested the vendor would be happy to develop and complete the build. Alternatively the buyer could bring in their own team and advisors.

Planning consent exists on the site for a number of designs, giving varied flexibility in size and style to the buyer. The designs promote the vernacular of both Georgian and Arts and Crafts architecture whilst combining it with aesthetic innovation and functionality for 21 Century Living. This celebration of period design sits well in the idyllic landscape, respecting the context whilst enhancing and making a substantive contribution to the local environment.

The synthesis of style and contemporary space works in harmony creating visually stimulating and arresting designs - such instances are rare to find and when they are built it will be a singular achievement.

The choice of these architectural styles and designs are wide ranging giving the buyer extensive flexibility and choice. The available plots sizes range from 3 acres (with possible additional 5.6 acres subject to negotiation) to 21.7 acres.

Current planning exists for three Georgian designs, an Arts & Crafts design and Farmstead & Old Farmhouse design with square footage varying from 13,765 sq. ft. to 20,107 sq. ft. Connectivity is excellent, 16 commercial fibre optics installed for only 6 houses. Models and further information are available for each option via the vendor's website below:
